“Great Getaway even in winter”
Reviewed 26 February 2011

We spent one night there. It takes a bit to get out there, but it is all public transportation and the tram ticket (line 11) is good for the boat ride as well.
We booked the Friday Gourmet Dinner with one night accommodation. The four course dinner was outstanding in a very nice atmosphere (newly built veranda) with good service. One could tell that the owners have a great love for good food with an focus on near produced and ecological ingredients. In the lobby there is a nice open fire where you can sit and relax afterwards. The rooms are simple, but clean.
We will definitely be back in summer when the island has also more to offer.

We stayed at Pensionat Styrso Skaret for one night in early April 04 (as the hotel we were staying in Gothenburg had double booked us..)

The hotel is on a very quiet island part of the archipelago off Gothenburg, and to reach it involves a tram ride to Salthomen and short ferry
ride to the small island of Styrso.

It's a very pretty island, which is very tranquil (and quiet). We borrowed a couple of bikes from the hotel which was a great way to see the island, which is quite small.

With this in mind, the hotel is very quiet, and there are no TV's. So you do have to make your own entertainment.

You also need to advise the hotel in advance (when you book) if you want dinner, or even a snack.

Nevertheless the hotel is charming, very clean, but very quiet. Our ensuite room was also very comfortable with lovely antique furniture,
although the blinds on our east facing room had a few gaps in, so we were woken early by the sun!! Nothing that a couple of strategically placed
books couldn't sort out!

Price wise we found it quite expensive, so be warned.

Be sure to leave plenty of time to catch the departing ferry too, as they won't wait for you. We just missed our intended ferry from the jetty nearest the hotel (a 5 minute walk) and very fortunately managed to grab a lift with a passing
van (a rare sight!) to the other side of the island where the ferry also lands and departs, but only just made it!! If we hadn't we would have
been stranded!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
You can still discover genuine, unspoilt places. It takes just 15 minutes on the ferry from Saltholmen in Gothenburg to arrive at an island without cars. An island with boat huts, shoreline meadows and old-fashioned houses. Incredibly close to the metropolis, yet secluded enough to be completely different. Our guest house on Styrsö is open all year round and guests are always given a warm welcome. ... more   less
